Ethel Waters is a goddess

Why hasn’t someone like John Singleton remade Cabin in the Sky? I mean, Hell could be the music industry. It pretty much is anyway, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch, really.

Ah well… Maybe it doesn’t need to be remade. It’s racist and nothing could ever top that song and dance (with Domino) Miss Waters does near the end. Nah, forget everything about it except those three minutes and all her other singing. Oh, and Lena Horne almost keeps up.

And this is not the best part. Too bad her “Honey in the Honeycomb” song isn’t on youtube, alas.
